Optimised FixReam Reamers For Improved Performance
The FixReam high-performance solid carbide reamers (FXR) from MAPAL have now been optimised with a selection of new carbide substrates. Catering for a wide range of applications, the high-performance reamers have between four and eight cutting edges with internal cooling and achieve correspondingly high feed rates.
Improving the entire range; new carbide substrates have been specifically tailored to the machining operation in combination with new coatings that result in longer tool life. A new arc land chamfer allows the reamers to enter the bore more precisely and as a result, circularities and cylindrical forms are further improved.
In addition to the optimised series, MAPAL has also developed a new model of high-performance reamer. The new ‘FixReam Short’ for the machining of steel and cast iron allows both through bores and blind holes to be machined with one and the same reamer. This is made possible by the innovative design that makes it suitable for use with short and medium production runs. Stock inventory costs are reduced thanks to the universal range of applications whilst the short form of the reamer preserves carbide metal resources and improves the stability of the tool.
